As usual Rockstar has kept us waiting when it comes to Information on Red Dead, but for sure it wont be 2018.
Numerous rumors says Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC will come out 2019 Q3!
This feels familiar, following the long, year-plus await GTA 5. Some people are saying RDR2 will not be available on PC, but why would Rockstars waste a chance to make hundreds of millions like GTA5 did, would it be worth? No, if only they have exclusive deals with PS4 and XBOX.
Several news items about the game’s PC version which are of interest, plus
we investigate Rockstar’s history of staggering ports on PC to find out if we
can make an educated guess on when Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive on our computers (if it does). Here is the Red Dead Redemption 2 launch trailer, but there is no Indication of a PC version nonetheless While Red Dead Redemption 2 still has not been verified for PC, it is possible to at
least check out John Marston in the launching trailer over. Here is how long it generally takes Rockstar matches to come to PC – GTA 4 took approximately seven months to make the leap to PC.- LA Noire took about six months to arrive on PC.
- Max Payne 3 started just two weeks after console variations in 2012,
but it’s reasonable to say this was historically regarded as a PC series.
- GTA 5 arrived 17 months following the PS3/Xbox 360 versions, and five months following the comparable Xbox One and PS4 versions. It was initially meant to launch about three months earlier, but in
January 2015, and was initially announced alongside the 2014 console
versions at E3 2014. If we were to make an Educated guess on if
Red Dead Redemption two does come to PC, then, history tells us it’ll
probably be a wait of about five-to-seven months. A decision on whether to bring Red Dead Redemption 2 to PC has probably already been produced. When we spoke to Rockstar North roughly GTA 5’s PC launch back in 2015, they said they planned for it from day one. “We were always likely to bring GTA 5 to PC.” Red Dead Redemption never arrived to PC after its first release in 2010, and Rockstar replied (vaguely) as to why this was the situation back in 2011.
“All we can say is that whenever it’s feasible (technically,
developmentally and business-wise) for us to release a match for PC (or any other particular stage )–we shall and we do; sadly,
that is simply not true 100% of the time for many platforms” That was
a very long time ago, however, and even at the time the business was bringing LA Noire, GTA and Max Payne 3 to PC. You need to go back 10 years to find another major Rockstar console game which skipped PC (Midnight Club: Los Angeles).GTA 5 sold a bucketload on PC, so it’s improbable Red Dead Redemption two would bypass our platformGTA 5 has sold more than 90 million copies in total, and it is an incredible feat. On Steam, it’s sold 12,604,123 copies according to recent statistics published about player counts. This does not contain copies sold in physical form or through third party resellers, but where the sport redeems through Rockstar Social Club, therefore the actual player count is very likely to be a bit higher than that. This makes a pretty good case for Red Dead Redemption two to come to PC. Strangely, instead of a proper PC launch for 2010’s Red Dead Redemption, you can stream it through Sony’s PlayStation Now service.
It’s no substitute for getting the game in your Steam library, of
Course, but it is an option in the event that you chose not to drop several hundred Pounds on a console eight years ago. It’s likely Rockstar’s second Finest game after GTA 5, and keeps up fairly well.
